Posed for Murder by Meredith Cole
Lydia is sure that she’s about to get her big break. She’s showing her quirky photographs in a big New York gallery. Certainly someone will want to buy some, perhaps enough someones that she can quit her day job? Sure, her photographs are a little gruesome – recreations of unsolved murders – but surely there are people who want that hanging in their house. Except, before the opening night of her showing can really even get going, the police show up with news that a good friend of hers has been murdered. Even worse, her friend was posed dead in an exact replication of the pose she struck for one of Lydia’s photographs. Now all of her friends are either potential killers or potential victims. Lydia has to get to the bottom of this before she or anyone else becomes the next target.
I thoroughly enjoyed this as a change from my normal fare. Lydia was a likable, believable character and the writing was definitely good. I probably wouldn’t have picked this up had Meredith Cole not been a member of the 2009 Debutante Ball class, but I’m glad that I did, and I’d like to continue to read her future works.
